VA, NC, TN 2014

The Biltmore Estate Ashville, NC
Flat Alex came along on our family vacation to VA, NC and TN. We visited his sister, Sarah and traveled all over the countryside.

Lost Sea Adventure, Sweetwater TN
We visited the lost sea caverns and rode in a glass bottom boat in the largest underground lake.

Gatlinburg TN
Gatlinburg is a tourist trap to beat them all. One attraction after another. We went to the aquarium and Ripley's Believe it or Not.

Big Easy with Mike M.

Thanks to my good friend Mike, for taking Flat Alex to NOLA and helping to fulfill the bucket list of cities. You rock, Mike.
 Hi Jennie! 

These photos have been on my memory card for some time ever since I returned from New Orleans...I hope you enjoy them. Alex kept me company in the Big Easy. He even helped me back to my hostel one night when I drank a little too much. Hope all is well.

Mardi Gras 2014

The last city on Alex's original bucket list has been fulfilled. Lisa S. is a friend of a friend and she volunteered to take Flat Alex to New Orleans for Mardi Gras and even brought a "skateboard" along for the full effect. Thank you, so much, Lisa, for taking Flat Alex with you. We hope you had a wonderful trip to NOLA.

Mystery Tour.....Somewhere in the UK with Amy N.

Amy N. is at it again. She probably wins the prize for taking Flat Alex to the most locations. Amy lives in Italy and travels quite a bit and they are off on another adventure. The kicker is, she won't say where. I've gotten these wonderful photos and am left to try and figure out the secret locations.

I can't read the small print on the flight lists from the airport photo. I've no idea where this museum could be.

This photo made me guess Paris, but I could be dreadfully wrong.

Cool old castle, somewhere.

And an unidentified body of water.

Another mysterious location

Does anyone have any ideas?

Where in the world is Flat Alex?

More photos added below. I finally was able to guess the mystery location. I won't post it right now, in case anyone wants to play along.
